Conrad Joseph The Mirror of the Sea & A Personal Record. Volume 16


Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. These works are unique in Conrad's oeuvre in being openly autobiographical - but in scope and literary form, they differ widely. In The Mirror of the Sea Conrad explores his vast knowledge of the sea in an era when the sailing ship gave way, after thousands of years, to steam. A Personal Record is Conrad's account of himself, his cultural background, and the central motives in his life as a seaman and a writer separated from the country where he was born.

Conrad Joseph Novels 1. Volume 11


Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. The Shadow Line tells a story of a young sea captain's first command which brings with it a succession of crises: sea is becalmed, the crew laid low by fewer, and his deranged first mate is convinced that the ship is haunted by the malignant spirit of a previous captain. The Nature of Crime is Joseph Conrad and Ford Madox Ford's collaborative work, a study of human psychology. The feelings of the protagonist, as life is crumbles around him, are expressed profoundly by the two authors. Heart of Darkness remains an indisputably classic text and arguably Conrad's finest work. Taking place mostly in Africa, it tells the story of Europeans going to the Congo in search of goods to bring back, mostly ivory.

Conrad Joseph Three Sea Stories. Typhoon, Falk & The Shadow-Line


As these three specially commissioned stories amply demonstrate, Conrad is our greatest writer of the sea. His characters are tested by dramatic events 'that show in the light of day the inner worth of a man, the edge of his temper, and the fibre of his stuff; that reveal the quality of his resistance and the secret stuff of his pretences, not only to others but also to himself'. In Typhoon, Conrad's funniest story, Captain MacWhirr blunders into a hurricane that reveals the sea's treachery, violence and terror. Falk is desperate to get married, but first he must tell of his terrible experiences as sole survivor of a stricken ship that once drifted into the ice-caps of Antarctica. The Shadow-Line is a poignant and beautiful story. Written during the First World War and based on Conrad's fond evocation of his own first command, it expresses his solidarity with all who were obliged to cross in early youth the shadow-line of their war-torn generation. Includes a glossary of nautical terms.

Conrad Joseph Heart of Darkness and Other Stories


Generally regarded as the pre-eminent work of Conrad's shorter fiction, Heart of Darkness is a chilling tale of horror which, as the author intended, is capable of many interpretations. Set in the Congo during the period of rapid colonial expansion in the 19th century, the story deals with the highly disturbing effects of economic, social and political exploitation of European and African societies and the cataclysmic behaviour this induced in some individuals. The other two stories in this book - Youth and The End of the Tether - concern the sea and those who sail upon it, a genre in which Conrad reigns supreme.

Portraying a young man's first sea-voyage to the East in Youth, and the blind old age of Captain Whalley in The End of the Tether, the stories in this volume are united in their theme - the 'Ages of Man' - and in their scepticism. Conrad's vision has influenced twentieth-century writers and artists from T. S. Eliot to Jorge Luis Borges and Werner Herzog, and continues to draw critical fire.
